The OMA joined the National Association of Manufacturers and a broad business coalition in a letter to President Trump thanking him for his support for infrastructure investment.
The letter stated: “An infrastructure initiative led by your administration is a generational opportunity to end the cycle of uncertainty that has plagued America’s infrastructure network and usher in a new era of stability and improvements we so desperately need.
“However, this will take leadership and bold, innovative solutions. It is critical that your infrastructure plan not only encourages greater participation from the private sector in infrastructure projects and reduces needless red tape, but also provides real revenue for the Highway Trust Fund that will help the users and beneficiaries of America’s transportation and freight network. Private financing, while important and needed, cannot replace the role of public funding and federal leadership.” 2/1/2017
